The CH22 lounge chair was the first model in Hans J. Wegner’s debut collection created exclusively for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1950 – a series that would become iconic in its representation of the modern Danish design philosophy.

Expertly-crafted with many subtle details

The CH22 lounge chair by Hans J. Wegner was brought back into production by Carl Hansen & Søn in 2016. It features elegant armrests, an envelope-woven paper cord seat, and a distinctive back shell in form-pressed veneer with striking oblong cover caps. The chair’s refined joinery is visible in the finger-joined corners of the seat frame, with the forelegs locking into wooden wedges in a different color than that of the frame. Today, while parts of the production process have been modernized, the CH22 is still manufactured as it was when Wegner oversaw initial production at the Hansen family facilities in 1950: with expert craftsmanship from assembly through to surface treatment and seat weaving. The CH22 lounge chair was introduced as part of a series that marked Wegner’s first masterpieces for Carl Hansen & Søn.

Hans J. Wegner

Designer
Among Danish furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the most creative, innovative and prolific. Often referred to as the master of the chair, Wegner designed more than 500 chairs in his lifetime – many of them considered masterpieces. He is probably best known for his iconic Wishbone Chair which has been in continuous production since 1950. The core of Wegner’s legacy is his focus on bringing the inner workings – the soul – of the furniture to the exterior, where the simplicity and functionality can be appreciated.
